What's not included?

  • The Town House is a mostly original building from 1626. Thus, it has no running water or toilet facilities. While there is a public toilet about a 2 minute walk, we cannot guarantee it will be available after dark. 

  • Refreshments: your welcome to bring your own hot/cold drinks & snacks. Since we have no services other than internet, heat & light, we have no capacity to serve hot or cold drinks.

Are there any restrictions?

  • There are no age restrictions as long as minors are accompanied by a responsible adult

  • There is very little walking involved so there are no fitness requirements other than the ability to climb a short, single flight of steps in/out of the building. We're happy to help those with walking difficulties

  • Class sizes are limited to a maximum of six people to enable everyone to have full engagement

  • There are two large car parks a few minutes walk from the Town House. There is no charge or time limit. You can off load equipment/people at the building entrance & then park if necessary.
